"Double degree" between Friuli and Austria Universities

21 October, 19:05
(ANSA) - UDINE, 21 OTT - Announced today at the University of Udine the first three master's graduates in "Artificial Intelligence & Cybersecurity," an international English-language degree program that provides a "double degree" from the University of Friuli and Alpen-Adria Universität in Klagenfurt, Austria, and requires at least one semester of study at the neighboring country's university. The three recent graduates, Renato Acampora, Alessio Fiorin, and Magdalena Maria Solitro, have already gained admission to Ph.D. programs in Italy (Udine), Spain (Tarragona), and Austria (Vienna), respectively.

Their theses, in English, were jointly supervised by a supervisor from Udine and one from Klagenfurt.

"We are proud of the first three graduates of this master's degree program we started two years ago," said the Dean of the Friulian university, Roberto Pinton, "a degree path shared with the University of Klagenfurt, and therefore the degree has a double value. We are among the first to have started it as a master's degree course, one of the steps in the evolution of the computer science area, which in our university boasts a 40-year tradition, as it started shortly after the foundation of the university." "The course - explained two of the creators, Agostino Dovier, new delegate for Didactics at the University of Udine, and Angelo Montanari, vice-rector - offers training on a wide spectrum of activities and profiles required by the companies, nationally and internationally, such as specialists in Artificial Intelligence and computer security, software or system analysts and designers." "It's a positive thing that students can gain research experience in both the universities of Udine and Klagenfurt - said Prof. Wolfgang Faber of the University of Klagenfurt - therefore, we are also very proud of this cooperation, which will continue in the coming years."
